Here is one of my favorite Maria Montessori quotes:
“Children are human beings to whon respect is due, superior to us by reason of their ‘innocence” and of the greater possiblities of their future…Let us treat them…with all the kindness which we would wish to help to develop in them.”
It is true that we cannot make a genius. We can only give to each child the chance to fulfill his potential possibilities.
If you ever have an opportunity to enroll your children or visit and study Montessori's philosophy, the Montessori School at Lone Tree does the best implementation of Montessori's interpretation of child development and education. To this day, my experiences there with my kids, their early education, and the staff at this school has provided me with everlasting gratitude, respect and a smile.

You've guided Sophia and shaped her into a girl who has a passion for learning and the ability to think for herself. You've given her the confidence to have faith in herself and her abilities. She is leaving MSLT a very different girl than the one who walked through your door three and a half years ago. And we know that it is because of your patience, guidance, talent, and love.
Thank you for the incredible gifts you have given our children. You have touched their lives in a way that will forever impact the people they become. They and we are better people for knowing you.
